    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
    • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
    • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government

    Financial issues to consider:

    • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
    Established: 9 years
